Brookhouse in feud with KRA

Brookhouse has escalated its long-running Sh.140 million tax row with the Kenya Revenue Authority to the Court of Appeal.

The school is in a feud with KRA following subsidised tuition fees granted to its staff, which High Court Judge David Majanja had in April ruled is a taxable benefit.

Though the school had sought suspension of the judges decision, pending an appeal, justice Majanja allowed KRA to collect a sum of Sh.15 million.

He stated that the facility granted to the employees by the school, is a taxable benefit for which the employee is liable and the school is obliged to collect Pay-As-You-Earn (Paye).

According to an audit on the school between 2010 and 2014, KRA realized and now claims taxes amounting to Sh.186.6 million.

The taxes included Paye, corporate tax, and withholding tax.
